groom & groom: James Bouchard and Jason Galvin

wedding date: October 12, 2013

the photographer says: A photographer is handed a gift when he gets to photograph two handsome grooms. Jason and James were remarkable the day of their wedding. With calming charm and coolness, they totally rocked the day with the refined style of a “ GQ” vibe. Jason and James dressed in the finest of traditional “coat-tailed” tuxedos. Seriously, how handsome are these guys? Jason and James’ new home set the perfect backdrop for some stylish, modern, fashionable formals.

Ceremony time at The Society Room of Hartford: Surrounded by their loving and supportive families and friends, the day was perfect for a Hartford Society Room wedding. It was a classic mix of an urban trendy feel, with elegant old world style….Think “Modern-day-Downton-Abbey”. As with any stylish couple, Jason and James had their own additions that added to the already spectacular Society Room. Blood red roses were some of the most gorgeous blooms we had seen all season. The ceremony area was arranged so family and friends could mingle, and share this beautiful union together. Jason and James exchanged heartfelt vows leaving very few dry eyes in the house, and ok mine were tearing up too. A true traditional romance, bound together by love and marriage.

After the ceremony we headed out past the Rolls Royce to the party bus, with the bridal party in tow. We toured Hartford stopping at the iconic “ Arch” and the always-classic Hartford City hall. A moon lit night under the arch in Hartford was a picture perfect evening, expressing the romantic and dramatic style of these classy gentleman. Back at the Society room, guests were greeted with an ice sculpture/ luge and beautiful blood red roses against a classic black and white color scheme. Audio Media Solutions (AMS) took care of fantastic purple uplighting and all of the dance tracks that kept the party going all night long.

Jason and James graciously gave each attendee a bottle of champagne to take home as a celebration of their marriage. A perfect example of high style and refined elegance for a modern romantic couple
